WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND MICROSHADING?
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure where pigment is implanted under the skin using a manual hand tool instead of a traditional tattoo machine. It uses a fine blade to create natural hair strokes that resembles real hair.
Microshading is also performed using a manual hand tool but it uses a tiny round needle instead of a slope needle. This technique is similar to microblading but it creates a fuller and softer powdered effect that resembles eyebrow pencil or powder. It also has the effect of ombré eyebrows whenmixed with microblading.
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
Each procedure is done under strict sanitation and sterilization rules. A well-trained, certified technician administers each procedure using disposable needles and parts. Before starting each procedure, the technician will open a new needle package to each client.
AM I ELIGIBLE TO GET THIS PROCEDURE?
Microblading is a safe and low risk procedure and suitable for most, however there are some medicalconditions that will require a doctaor’s note (diabetics, auto-immune disorder, on blood-thinning medicationand more).

We will not tattoo any clients who are pregnant and or breastfeeding.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Highly effective topical anesthetic cream is used to numb the area to be treated. This helps to alleviate any minor discomfort you may experience during the procedure. Comfort levels varies according to individual pain threshold and response to anesthetics. Some people describe what they feel as ‘irritation’, ‘vibration’, or ‘a slight burning sensation’.
ARE THERE ANY ALLERGIC REACTIONS
TO THE PIGMENTS?
The pigments used on all our procedures are hypoallergenic and reactions to these products are extremely rare. However, after care instructions should be strictly followed to prevent any bacterial infection.
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Eyelash Extensions: Please come to your appointment with clean eyes free of makeup. Do not wear contact lenses to your lash appointment. If you require eyelash extension removal, please call us prior to booking.
Eyebrows: If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, bring reference photos.
Eyeliner: Wear your regular glasses instead of your contact lenses. Do not wear mascara (especially water-proof mascara, because this is more difficult to remove, and doing so will cause the eyes to be more irritated and sensitive). If you have eyelash extensions, please remove them 1 day before the appointment.
Hairline: Please wash your hair in the morning of your appointment since you won’t be able to wash them for 2 days after the procedure
Lips: If you have EVER had sores/fever blisters/herpes on or around your lips, you MUST obtain a prescription from your doctor and inform him/her that your intention is to have a lip tattoo. Start taking it 3 days before and 4 days after the procedure (or follow the doctor’s instruction). Failure totake this antiviral medication may well cause an outbreak, which in turn will compromise the results of your lip procedure
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
We provide very specific post-care instructions after your procedure. It is highly beneficial to follow these instructions to ensure a good healing process and to achieve the best results. The most essential aftercare is to avoid extreme heat (like saunas, jacuzzi, hot yoga, steam rooms, places with hot humidity) and do not rub or pick on the scabs.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD LIKE?
It will take on average about 10-14 days for it to heal.
Immediately following a procedure, there will be mild swelling, redness, or tenderness that lasts a few hours to a few days (hairline and eyebrows swell less than eyes and lips).
There may also be slight bruising with lip procedures. As part of the healing process, you may experience mild peeling, flaking or scabbing. Most people are amazed at how “normal” they look immediately after and do not feel it is necessary to take time off work.
WHAT WILL THE FINAL COLOR LOOK LIKE?
Color will always look darker and more intense immediately following a procedure. It will gradually lighten and soften upon healing, which should take about 3 to 7 days and continue to lighten over several weeks.
HOW LONG DOES SEMI-PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?
Semi-permanent makeup will last up to 2-2.5 years. It will gradually fade over time and we recommend that our clients come in for an annual touch-up to maintain a good shape and color.
However, the frequency of touch-ups depend on a number of factors including: your skin type, lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas.
